LinkedIn is one of the best places to find your targeted prospects. You can find prospects based on industry, title, location, experience, company size and so on. Sometimes you might get their email address from LinkedIn profile but most of the times you are only left with just your prospect name & company name. This prevents you from reaching your top prospects immediately.
You can send connection requests to your prospects and wait for them to accept your invitation. However, this may not happen immediately. It might take days, weeks or even months. So, the question is how to find someone’s email on LinkedIn.

If you are trying to find email address of small businesses or bloggers, then Facebook is the right place you can bump into. Visit the Facebook page of your prospect. In the About tab -> contact info, you will be able to find the email address.
You will most likely find company email addresses such as firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com which might not help you in a personalized email outreach.
Instagram is a good place if you are trying to find email address of a person who is into small business. It is usually easy to find the email addresses on instagram, when viewed from your mobile. Click the email button on the profile right below the description/bio – you will find it right there.
You can also find email addresses in the comments, in the caption of an image or in the link to a website. You will have to spend some time and search manually in order to get the email address.
Every website has a news & press releases section in which the company makes official statements or announcements about their business. Open their recent press release and scroll down to the source or press contacts section. You can find the contact email address and business phone numbers there.
If you did not find the email address of your targeted prospect but someone else from the company, then you can simply reach out to that person. Ask for an introduction with your targeted prospect or request to pass on your email message to the person you are looking for.
WHOIS domain lookup
A WhoIs lookup identifies the administrator contact information, billing contact and the technical contact for each domain name listing or IP in the WhoIs database.
